Miami Valley CAP celebrates 55 years


DAYTON – Miami Valley Community Action Partnership (MVCAP) is celebrating Community Action Month, dedicated to recognizing the success of the national Community Action Network. America’s Community Action Agencies connect millions of children and families to greater opportunity, transforming their lives and making our communities — and our nation— stronger. This month, MVCAP will be engaging in programs and events that showcase our innovative work in the Miami Valley.

“Community Action Month is a wonderful time to honor and celebrate the impact Community Action has in the lives of families and communities across the country,” stated MVCAP President and CEO, Cherish Cronmiller. “The Community Action Partnership Network offers insight to leaders looking to understand what is working on the ground to help families thrive—creating smarter solutions that can be put to work within communities across the country.”

Cronmiller continued, “This past year, our agency has served thousands of families in the Miami Valley and empowered them to attain self-sufficiency. Our Home Weatherization Assistance Program alone has served more than 1,000 households in that timeframe. Our work changes lives and strengthens our entire community.”

To celebrate its success and raise awareness in the community MVCAP will host a free public event with food, prizes, entertainment, and more in Darke. The local celebration will be held at Greeneville City Park on Friday, May 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, visit MVCAP’s Facebook page at Facebook.com/MVCAP/events.
